Green repurposed wine glass (rough around the edges, but it has been sanded and is safe) 10 oz hand-poured soy wax with Wooden wicks require trimming after each burn. If you do not trim you are essentially trying to light already burnt wood which does not work well. Trim the burn excess wood off to around 1/4" after each burn. Safety. Burn within sight and keep away from children, pets, and flammable materials. Never leave your candle unattended. Burn. Each time you light your candle, burn for a minimum of 2 hours, or until the melted wax pool reaches the edge of the glass. This will prevent wax tunneling.
